De Villiers started crying in front of Asif: Akhtar

Lahore, 3 January (IANS) Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has said that former South African captain Abraham de Villiers started crying in front of his team’s former fast bowler Mohammad Asif.

Akhtar also said that former Indian batsman VVS Laxman had also said this.

Akhtar told Sports Today, Mohammad Asif is bigger than Wasim Akram, whom I have seen bowling. I have actually seen batsmen crying while facing Asif. Laxman once said, how will I face this man. De Villiers literally started crying during the Asian Test Championship.

Akhtar praised Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah, saying that Bumrah is the smart bowler after Asif.

He said, I think Bumrah is the smart bowler after Asif at present. In Test cricket people were skeptical of Bumrah’s fitness, even I have seen him closely. His bouncer is the fastest.
